You say you honour the land Alfar - what about Disir and wights?
The wights I would include under the
ancestors, as would the Disir (if you take Disir to be female ancestral
gaurdians). However, I also call upon the Disir when casting the
circle for Druidic ritual & meditation. During a Blot toast it is to the Gods/ess', the land Alfar and the ancestors.
Now you got to tell me who is Loca ??
Loca is how I call Loki. I
don't think the name is attested in any Anglo-Saxon (A-S) writings historically but I
and other A-S heathens have used this name. Loca would mean the "one
who closes" which seems rather apt. With Frig and Ingwine-Frey these are the Gods/ess I primarily honour and work with.
I wonder if there are good sources of information about
how do that. How do adapt rituals, concepts, symbols from a Celtic culture
to a Saxon/Norse/Germanic culture.
A good point and I don't think it exists (although this blog is my perspective).
It's why the Gewessi path discussion first started on the alt.religion.pagan.uk
forum many years ago.
During the Bardic work, certainly early
on, I felt very conflicted wondering which path to take. Discussion
around the Gewessi meme/idea and knowing from my tutor that Coifi in OBOD,
before passing to the Summerlands, had been walking a similar path. I
still hadn't fully resolved the issue by the end of the Bardic work.
So I think each person has been carving
their own path - now I'm coming to the end of the OBOD Ovate work I've realised
that part of the reason it's taken so long is because much of my work has
been doing precisely that. Understanding this syncretism of OBOD
and Heathen work in the rituals, concepts and symbols of the land where
In fact there are 3 strands that I
use; OBOD Druidic philosophy with Heathen religion and western scientific
logic (aka Logos).
